Ryan McCartan leveled some serious accusations against his former fiancee, Disney Channel star Dove Cameron. He recently held a Q&A on his Instagram account with fans and someone asked him what his proudest moment is. That’s when the 26-year-old dropped the bombshell news that Cameron was unfaithful.
“Within two weeks, my fiancée cheated on and left me, I almost died from food poisoning, and Donald Trump was elected president,” he wrote. “I truly didn’t think I would be able to make it through that part of my life.
“I’m proudest of the light that came from the darkness,” McCartan continued. “And my ability to survive and turn the anger and sadness I had into positive life changes and a new way forward.”
McCartan announced back in 2016 that they were breaking up just six months after they got engaged.
“Dove has decided this relationship isn’t what she wants,” he wrote at the time. “We still love each other very much. Please be sensitive, as this is painful.”
At the time, he claimed to E! News that the split was because of their busy schedules, not because of any cheating.
“She’s so busy. I’m so busy,” McCartan said in 2016. “The last thing we want to do is turn it into another thing on the to-do list, you know what I mean? I mean, we’re infants—we’re children—so we have a lot of time to plan and get it done, and it’ll happen when it’s supposed to.”
Cameron has since moved on to dating Thomas Doherty, who starred with her in Descendants 2 and Descendants 3.
On Friday morning, she posted about her wonderful birthday by sharing a photo of herself on a bout with Doherty.
“Only photo evidence of an UNbelievable birthday of adventure & surprises orchestrated by this earth angel,” she wrote.
“17 hours of cake, crepes, balloons, flowers, water sports on a private boat/lake, arcades, pizza, ice cream, a whole laser tag course to ourselves (surprising me with loads of my friends/family, some of which i hadn’t seen in a year or more, all there to laser tag cause I f–king love it) finishing the day at my favorite little (secret) late night cafe for apple cider & pool. drove me all over LA, keeping me in the dark until the very last min, organized to the very last detail. i mean, whatta guy. what i ever did to deserve this kinda love, i’ll spend my whole life wondering.”
